they can know you better or they can know you worse, but no one knows you like you do.

really, you could be anything at all. a small pebble getting kicked along on a busy street, a hair in someone's drink, a goodluck charm, a time filler-upper, a warm mouth, a mirror, a tall glass of lemonade on the hottest day of the year. And you will never have any control over these things, what you are to other people. these things can change daily, you can be anything, to anyone, at any moment. it’s a simple choice though, the one you do have. here or gone. stick around or get to going. let ‘em use you or don’t. for some it is an easy choice to close your heart off to other people. but mostly, it’s like when you see a balloon floating high up in the sky, up and off over some distant trees. you trace it with your eyes for as long as you can, but you know it can’t stay up there forever.
